Words from clients:

Alan Proctor, Man in the Machine

I’ve worked with Marianne Hales Design for nearly 12 years on literally hundreds of freelance design projects, including very large assignments for major national corporations. When I give Marianne a job, I know I’ll get highly creative, thoughtful design work, on time and on budget, backed by a great sense of typography, and outstanding production skills.

Kathleen S. Andujo, Behr Process Corp.

Marianne Hales is a highly creative, detail oriented and collaborative graphic designer. She completely redefined the Behr Expressions paint brand by designing a new logo and a corresponding collection of high-end collateral, sales materials, packaging and POP displays. The new look elevated the brand to the next level resulting in rave reviews by our sales reps and customers, increased revenues and an expanded domestic and international customer base. Marianne was a pleasure to work with and she never missed a deadline — she quickly became a valuable and reliable partner for all of our creative and design needs.

Michael Parham, President - Board of Education at Irvine Unified School District

Marianne is extremely adept a taking a broad description of what is wanted by the client, and forming a concept that “hits the nail on the head.” She has done this with my three businesses, working on everything from corporate logo, to signs and marketing materials, sometimes without a clear vision from me as to what I needed. Marianne also works very well with opinionated and passionate people. 

Larayne Boaz, Behr Process Corp.

I first started working with Marianne Hales in 2000. She was an instrumental part in the re-branding of Behr Premium Plus in 2003. She has continued working closely with myself as well as other Behr team members on a variety of projects. Her designs are always well thought out, researched and portray quality and sophistication. She is a pleasure to work with.

Amy Tow, Behr Process Corp.

I have worked with Marianne Hales for over 5 years. She is a thoughtful designer that offers solutions and makes the designs look beautiful. She is easy to work with, understands the objectives of the projects, and is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.

Dianne Kamenetsky, M.D., Renewal Dermatology & Laser

Marianne Hales has done a great job with making my logo, brochures and business cards to promote my
medical practice. She is easy to work with, completes projects on time and I have received many compliments
on her work.
